been extended -- no one exactly knows where it goes from there. >> right. >> if obama has more appointments and if the conservatives don't have the power that they do now, that could be contained. it could be applied only to handguns. but if president romney had had the opportunity or president paul ryan in a few years gets the opportunity to appoint justices to the supreme court, that could be expanded. the limits of the second amendment are not clear at this point. the supreme court has not really spoken on it. that's one of the reasons why it's so important, who appoints whom to the supreme court. >> at what point is gun violence in america a public health threat, right? you talk about the freedom, the freedoms we have in this country where the public health risk, 30 some thousand people killed every year. cdc says it's $38 billion, the cost of society of gun violence. >> what's so astonishing about the debate of gun violence, it's different from the '90s when i first started covering this issue. you have people arguing very seriously now that the way to stop or limit gun vi
, and they checked it out and she was right that was a mistake in the of, which leads us to death four years ago. you may recall that when chief justice john roberts administered the oath to barack obama i'm january 20th of 2009, there was a major problem. the major problem consisting of the words that he said. roberts is supposed to save -- roberts was supposed to say that i will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states and then on, repeats, but instead of saying those words he said, but i will execute the office of president to the united states faithfully. so then barack obama stopped, paused, smiled, as if to say come on. this is my big day. you have to get this right. unfortunately he did not get it right and then obama even later repeated some of robbers mistake. so the very next night in the white house they did again, but it was a second of, this time roads used notes, which she had not use the first time, and they got it right. so that chapter in my book is called a state it again. in 1965, lady bird johnson became the first lady to hold the bible as the oath was admin
. greenhaus is going to stay with us. all right, katie. first of all, obama basically said in ten days we can get a deal, it sounds like a small deal, 250,000 is the middle class threshold after mr. boehner's plan "b" got defeated. is such a thing possible? or will we have to wait until the new year? >> we're probably going to have to wait until the new year, unless, of course, president obama comes back with this new plan -- the original plan that he had, which as you mentioned the $250,000 threshold. the fact is that boehner and obama's proposals really aren't that far apart right now. president obama wants $1 trillion in new taxes, john boehner has said he's willing to give $1 trillion. obama said he wants $800 billion in spending cuts, same thing for boehner. but the difference comes with the once again, the tax threshold. president obama originally said he would be willing to go with the $400,000 tax threshold. and as boehner said going off obama's words, he was willing to do it at $1 million. it comes down to what that threshold is. >> karen finney, i want to ask you about the same ques
everyone some good here. >> that's right. on friday when president obama spoke to the nation before he left to come to hawaii he urged members of congress to take these days off during the holidays, to cool off and to gain some perspective. here's more of what president obama had to say. take a listen. >> so, as we leave town for a few days to be with our families for the holidays i hope it gives everybody some perspective. everybody can cool off. everybody can drink some eggnog, have some christmas cookies and sing some christmas carols, enjoy the company of loved ones. >> now the president also conceded that given the time crunch, there's probably not enough time to get a large deal done. so he really urged lawmakers to work together to at least get a deal that would prevent middle class americans and that lays the groundwork for deficit reduction and the president saying he remains hopeful that something can get done before the all-important january 1st deadline and i am told by sources at the white house that this will be a working vacation for the president. >> working in terms of what
. >> that is a crucial point right there, folks. here is president obama. not saying, you know, boehner can't get his caucus together. i got my folks together. we're ready to rock 'n roll. we've got a deal right on the table for the american people. it's boehner, he is the problem. the president didn't do that. today every american should be encouraged about the fact that there is leadership coming out of the white house. this president has got so many olive branches coming out of the windows of the white house, nobody could cut them off. the fact is, this president has done everything he can. he even put social security on the table. that's right, chained cpi. that was there. he said he wasn't going to do it, but he wanted a deal. and the president is explaining not everybody is going to get what they want. americans are very clear on the solution they want. higher taxes for the wealthiest americans and sensible cuts in spending. that's where the country is right now. last night republicans destroyed their own party because they refused to agree with the american people. but, of course, they think i

boehner right now. he's still in a tight spot and the concern that the republicans have is that obama's panel strength and as we go over the cliff and tax rates go up. but i really think the buck stops with the president here. when you go into the negotiating sessions, paul and you're expected to make concessions, but you're expect today get something in return and boehner made a major concession on rights and the president is giving him nothing in return to take that to his caucus and say, this is what happened in the horse trading. it's all or nothing, obama seems determined to humiliate the opposition. >> paul: boehner made two concessions, first 800 billion on the table in revenue and don't raise rates when the president said no he, you've got to raise rates. he said okay, a concession on rates, an offer first we'll vote for a million dollar tax increase on those making more than a million dollars, but give me something in return. then, those negotiations went nowhere, so then john boehner went to plan b. and i mean, i think you sense at least when i talk to boehner's people the e

sense to raise anybody's taxes right now. but guess what, elections matter. president obama won. but we have got to get meaningful spending cuts. we are going to spend 3.8 trillion laura this year. we are going to bring in only 2.5 trillion. but out of the 2.5, every single penny is spent on the debt and all the entitlements, medicare, medicaid, social security, so unless we are talking hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of billions of dollars in spending cuts, this discussion about tax increases is just foley. it is absolutely ridiculous. harry reid said that the boehner mr. was dead on arrival. it wasn't going to pass the senate anyway. so, boehner didn't get the support of his members, enough at least and it would have been a vote for not because the senator would have said thanks, no thanks. we are going to have the leverage and we will shove whatever you want down your throats whether you like it or not. the whole situation was kind of ridiculous in the beginning. >> instead of plan b it was sort of plan b.s. it was dead on arrival. it wasn't a bold plan. you need to from o'reilly

program, sunday 9:00 a.m. eastern and noon eastern as well. >>> all right. so how far are we from a physicifiscal cliff deal? president obama and john boehner talked yesterday, their first conversation since monday when the two sides offered up concessions on tax hikes for the wealthy. boehner offered lower tax rates for people earning up to $1 million a year. the president offered lower tax rates for people earning up to $400,000 a year, plus tweaks for computing entitlement benefits, okay? well, today boehner was very firm. his message for president obama, the ball is in your court. >> the president and senate democrats have vowed to reject and veto all of our proposals while failing to offer responsible solutions of their own. what the president has offered so far simply won't do anything to solve our spending problem, and begin to address our nation's crippling debt. and he refuses to challenge the members of his party to deal honestly with the entitlement reform and big issues facing our nation. that's why we find ourselves here today. >> president obama did not mention fisca

that's looking pretty right now is barack obama. mine, he's looking really good, in my opinion. a lot of others as well. >> he doesn't want to have this fiscal cliff happen, have a recession, and start his legacy this way. he's got some things he wants to do. he doesn't want this around important six months either. >> i agree. i agree he doesn't want that. but let's also remember, i dash you know, susan, you and i have known each other and love each other, like history. history tells me that -- these are the same republicans voted for sequestration and that this thought it was to 2011 and the president signed the bill into law and why in the hell should we just go ahead and let it happen? agree with you. it is probably not a good thing. markets will react negatively and it could dip us back into a very temporary and slight recession. i don't want to see that. but they did vote for this. >> well, you know what, speaking of temporary, chris, is there a path out of this mess? is there going to be a quick fix? kick the can down the road, six months from now we come back to where we are to
hours ago, alex certainly not a vacation for me. >> 2:30 in the morning there, right? >> quite early here. and president obama beginning his vacation against the back drop you just described. washington still in disarray. seemed earlier this week, the president obama, house speaker john boehner, would get a deal that would include deficit reduction and tax reform. that has fallen apart. so there is a big question mark about what happens now. how they move forward. president obama boarded air force one friday evening with his family. as they left for hawaii. but a little earlier in the day, he met with senate majority leader harry reid and spoke with house speaker john bainer and addressed the nation on the topic of avoiding the fiscal cliff. called on lawmakers to compromi compromise, to get a deal done. he acknowledged time has run out for getting a larger package. what they need to focus on now is getting a smaller deal that will avoid taxes from going up on middle class americans. meanwhile, a very rough friday for house speaker john boehner, really spent most of the day, explaini
the right if he supports a tax increase. i think president obama is doing the only sane thing he can, which is reach out to the speaker and he controls the house and, that is -- and the good news for the president is the public seems by all the polls, by the fact the election came out the way it did, to be in his corner, not the speaker's. >> rick: the president -- you want to weigh in on that? >> i just -- >> rick: americans are in favor of raising taxes on the wealthiest americans and, the president did win, november 6th. >> we have seen polls that say that, they approve tax reform and want to see real entitlement reform and want to get spending under control. but, president obama has failed to bring anything up to the -- on the table, and, especially the democrats, they have been silently on entitlement reform and silent on the spending cuts and as we know, we can talk about raising taxes on the rich. but, you know, it is like having a dad with a college daughter and they need to cut up the credit cards if they are spending too much. you have to cut the spending in order to get the -- th
have critics on the right, though. on the left there is rumbling that democratic presidents should stop putting republicans in the secretary of defense job like bill clinton did with bill cohen and president obama already did once with bob gates. calling it the bizarre tradition of sorts where democratic presidents suddenly act like republicans are right, that only they, republicans, can run our national security affairs. so there is general criticism from the left that democrats should stop bolstering the myth that republicans are stronger on defense because they're republicans, and therefore, only republicans should run defense even when a democrat is president. but there is also this one very specific criticism of chuck hagel individually. it's not a general criticism. it's about his record. back when it was mr. hagel who had the power to confirm presidential nominees or deny them, back when he was a united states senator, mr. hagel stood in opposition to president clinton's nominee to be the ambassador to luxembourg, a man named james hormel. senator hagel explained at the time that
moments for you with obama? i imagine one of them is when he came out so vocally for gay rights finally. >> absolutely, that's great. >> what else? >> what else has he done are you saying? >> yeah, that you're particularly proud of. >> his stance for women. women, the power of women or not allowing just for that one reason in my show i would say i'm not going to tell you, i would say i'm not going to tell you who to vote for but if you want clean air, you want good food and so forth and if you believe that a woman has a right to choose what happens in her own body, in other words, or you think your body belongs to the state, there's a clear choice. how could you thank god that akin and murdoch came out with those extremist views. >> they were extraordinary statements. >> unbelievable. i thought isn't that great. keep talking, boys. >> when you watched the footage of those moments, neither of them had a clue they said anything remotely contentious. >> that's scary. >> i found that pretty unsettling. you could reach the point of potentially becoming a senator and actually have no clue wha
, and it'll be available to the public after the end of the obama administration. >> what about the campaign video? that's private though, right? >> got to figure that out still. you know, the dnc kept all the stuff from 2008 and then gave it back to the campaign when it reignited, but now that the campaign's seemingly over, where that footage goes is very interesting. i'm hoping that it's donated to the obama presidential library whenever that starts to take form. and i betcha it will be. >> well, it's in first cameraman that arun chaudhary documents his experiences as the
